A Shelbyville nanny sits in the hospital recovering after running through fire to save a little boy left in her care.
She says what she did wasn't out of the ordinary, but to walk through fire to save someone and to do it without shoes makes this 22-year-old live-in nanny nothing but less but extraordinary.
"I really wasn't focused on the pain. I was just more focused on getting help," says Myatt from her hospital bed at U of L's burn center.
Early Tuesday morning with the rest of the family out of town...Alyson and Aidan were alone when he heard a loud thump coming from the 5-year-old's bedroom. So she ran upstairs, barefoot and in her pajamas.
"The hall was on fire. I was calling for him," recalls Myatt. "He said, 'Aly I'm in here I'm in my room under my covers.'"
But instead of calling 911 or running to get help, Alyson ran right through the flames without a second thought.
"So I ran in there, grabbed him and ran out." cries Alyson. "He was screaming and right after I ran off the carpet..my feet. It was like I was walking on goo. All this skin. My feet were just burnt off."
Still barefoot and in tremendous pain, Alyson ran out the house with Aidan and got him into a car and drove to a neighbors house to get help.
"Lucy is her name. She popped out and I said the house is on fire. Call the fire department. I said my feet are on fire. So she drove me to the Shelbyville emergency."
With 2nd and 3rd degree burns to her right hand and both feet, doctors transferred Alyson to the burn center at U of L hospital. Her feet now wrapped in gauze hide the physical scars but not the emotional ones.
"I'm just happy Aidan's OK. That he wasn't on fire."
By phone, Shelbyville's fire chief called Alyson the ultimate hero, saying Aidan would have likely died if she didn't make that split second decision.
"I didn't even think about me getting burned. I care for the kid a lot."
